At Tinkergarten, families meet outdoors to connect and learn through play. In this free trial class, Tinkergarten Leader, Simone Strickland, will facilitate an expert-designed play scenario, allowing children of various ages and needs to explore, problem solve, communicate, collaborate, and create together. Parents and caregivers learn, too, as we’ll share insight into your child’s development.
This trial class is:
- Designed for children ages 3-5 years. Child/children are accompanied by an adult. Siblings of any other age are most welcome.
- Limited to the first 15 families who register.
- Kids may get a bit messy (Hurrah!), so please send them in clothing that can get dirty.
- We start the class at the specified location, but may end within a reasonable walk from that location.
I learned how and when to step back and let my son be himself in certain situations. That was a lesson that I needed so much as a parent. The leader was able to communicate this in such a gentle and generalized way that I was able to step back and see myself. Not only was that a useful lesson, it was life changing.

It’s a wonderful and rare class where both the parent and child have an opportunity for learning.

We like the sense of flow - the class is very peaceful and not overly-structured. The teachers and the program meet the child where they are. It's amazing---every time we go to the park now, I find my child more creative because of Tinkergarten.
